The role and responsibility of your McKenzie friend is to help you respond to litigating your own case.
Expert coaching and preparation skills have been developed by myself over many years to assist you with the necessary strategies to achieve the best outcome for your children.
Proven court support with credetials and case achivments is criticial.
As one of the parties in a case, you are, by definition, emotionally involved, and have more than a financial stake in the outcome.
Emotions can prevent you thinking clearly, listening carefully and understanding what is being said.
Your McKenzie Friend can keep you focused on the facts, help you present and manage your case in the most effective way and help you feel less alone.
What can my McKenzie Friend do?
- Sit beside you in court and direct you to your notes and evidence.
- Take notes for your final submissions.
- Suggest questions for you to ask from your court bundle.
- Keep you focused on your case and what you want to say.
- Be another pair of ears to listen for you.
- Help you stay less emotional and give factual responses.
- A party may be allowed to introduce a McKenzie friend into court to assist them. There is no right to have a McKenzie friend : the only right is that of the litigant to have reasonable assistance.
